Tea Party Advocate Dick Armey Says Abortion Will Be Key Priority for Republicans If They Take Control of Congress
The Christian Science Monitor: 'Tea party's' Dick Armey: A GOP majority would take up abortion fight, by Dane Cook:
"Tea party" advocate Dick Armey, chairman of Freedom Works, says that if Republicans take control of Congress in November’s elections, changing policies on social issues like abortion will be on their agenda.
Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels, a possible Republican presidential candidate in 2012, said in June that the next president “would have to call a truce on the so-called social issues” so that the nation’s debt and deficit problems could be solved.
When asked Monday at a Monitor-sponsored breakfast for reporters about the possibility of a truce on social issues going into the presidential campaign, Mr. Armey said, “A truce? No. These are issues of the heart. People are not going to turn their hearts and minds away from things that they have so heartfelt.”. . .
